Becoming Collectively Conscious: Understanding the Law of Supply and Demand

In today’s world, many of us may have a hard time believing that our well-intentioned choices can affect a larger picture in a positive way.

However, our choices may have more of an effect than we think, such as in the case of changing trends, which occur all the time.
